Outreach

We believe it is a fundamental responsibility of scientists to not only study and discover, but to share our knowledge with diverse audiences and inspire the generation of scientists that will follow us.

Students at the White Earth Academy of Math and Science help Gunnar Kramer release a banded warbler during a lesson about migration, climate change, and breeding and wintering ranges of migratory songbirds.  Everyone is serious with the bird in hand (above) but laughter erupts (right) as the bird flies back into the forest.

Every year we make time to interact with local communities near our field sites and explain what we are up to and why our work is important.  We have given presentations and bird banding demonstrations for groups of 20 to 200, taken groups on birding walks, and hosted photographers and journalists during our field work to reach the broader community (see Media page).

 

We make a special effort to share science with elementary students and groups under-represented in the biological sciences. Each summer, Dr. Streby joins scientists in Minnesota for a week of Wildlife and Forestry education for elementary and middle school students at the White Earth Academy of Math and Science.
